How do Challenges help with my weight loss?

MAN v FAT Challenge is built around 3 key principles


Nutrition – Members are challenged each week to create a meal from scratch around a theme. They have to upload picture evidence on their Members Area of them taking part in the Challenge to earn points for their team.

Each teams best dish can be put forward to earn bonus points.


Exercise – Members are Challenged each week to Complete 3 x 30 mins or 5 x 30 mins of exercise over 7 days. As part of this exercise they also must complete the exercise focus we set. For example members must complete a boxing session as part of their 3 or 5 weekly sessions.


Building Healthy Habits – Members receive points for tracking their food, exercise and water each week. Through their own members area they can set goals and targets and earn badges as they progress through their journey.

Is this MAN v FAT Football?
Is MAN v FAT Challenge the same as MAN v FAT Football?

No! Please note that MAN v FAT Challenge is not the same as MAN v FAT Football and you will not be assigned to a MAN v FAT Football league by signing up for MAN v FAT Challenge.
